Ranger Experience

This is the ultimate gift for anyone who loves nature. When you go on our Ranger Experience you work alongside our staff and enjoy up-close encounters with captive species which makes working at Ngā Manu so unique. Meet our native species which include kea, kākā, kererū, kiwi, tuatara, scaup, whio, pateke and geckos. Every day presents a new wildlife challenge for the Ngā Manu crew and on the Ranger Experience you will be part of the action. A great school holiday treat.
